I just had my wisdom teeth removed in the morning. And the bottom left stitch has broken within 5 hours. Only my bottom two teeth needed stitches. How will this affect me? Should I go back?

  • the stitches are given to close the gap of the extraction wound so that healing is quick and the extraction socket doen not get infected. It also prevents the dislodgement of the clot. So if the stitch has come out with in 5 hours then you have to go to the dentist. The stitches are supposed to be there for 7 days.
